Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The author of the acclaimed Smilla's Sense of Snow tells the story of a troubled youth in a Danish boarding school who discovers that he and his fellow inmates are part of a bizarre social experiment. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.


Review:

"As much as a novel about a boarding school from hell, a fairy tale with the obligatory locked doors, magic keys, secret caves and refugee children, a bill of indictment against Danish educational policy and a clever riff on Norse myths from the Elder Eddas, 'Borderliners' is a philosophical romance, a black valentine about Time. We are asked to imagine, instead of middle-class minutes and industrialized workweeks, a child's time that's slowed, curved, dark, fluid, swollen, collapsed, at least as various as consciousness itself, and maybe even artful."

John Leonard, Nation, 11/20/1995

Review:

"Gripping and disturbing...Hoeg's evocation of the way a child perceives the world is alarmingly vivid."

Book Description: St Martin s Press, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 208 x 137 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. National Bestseller Strange things are happening at Biehl s Academy when this elite school opens its doors to a group of orphans and reform-school rejects, kids at the end of the system s tether. But the school is run by a peculiar set of rules by which every minute is regimented and controlled. The children soon suspect that they are guinea pigs in a bizarre social experiment, and that their only hope of escape is to break through a dangerous threshold of time and space. Peter Hoeg s brilliant and dystopian Borderliners is a uniquely philosophical thriller ( Boston Sunday Globe ) and a haunting story of childhood travail and hope.
